Modal is a type of rayon, which is a semi-synthetic fiber that is manufactured through the spinning recycled cellulose. This kind of cellulose oftentimes come from beech trees. The modal fabric is processed in such a way that is different from how rayon is processed. The changes in the manufacturing process lead to a stronger and more durable material than rayon. One benefit of this type of fabric over the standard rayon is that it has a softer feel. This fabric can be used alone o but it can also be blended with other types of fabric, like spandex and cotton. It is used in creating different household items like bedsheets, bathrobes, underwear, towels and pajamas.
